THE "VAST LEFT-WING CONSPIRACY" CONSIDERED. Tuesday's Opinion Journal has an article by Jacob Laksin, reviewing National Review reporter Byron York's new book, The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy. (The full title reads: The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy: The Untold Story of How Democratic Operatives, Eccentric Billionaires, Liberal Activists, and Assorted Celebrities Tried to Bring Down a President--and Why They'll Try Even Harder Next Time.)

Laksin gives the book a strong endorsement, recounting some of the ways in which the MoveOn folks got things so completely wrong in this last election, and focusing on the immense amount of anger by the anti-Bush crowd. "Conspiracy" in the sense used by Laksin (and, presumably by York) doesn't mean mysterious, powerful people meeting behind-closed-doors in smoke-filled rooms to unhatch sinister schemes. Regardless, I love the title of the book. I find it catchy.

Long have I been awaiting the release of York's book. Laksin's review prompted me to order it through Amazon. Hopefully, I'll be reading through it by the weekend.
